The Writing Center at Emporia State University promotes writing as a tool for teaching and learning in every discipline and assists writers in preparing for the practical, real-life applications of writing in the workplace as well as in the academic world.
The Writing Center seeks to develop critical thinking and other writing skills in support of ESU's tradition of excellence in education. We're here for everyone who is interested in becoming a better writer! We believe that
- Good writing requires good thinking
- Writing is a process
- Writing is a collaborative activity
The Virtual Writing Center site is open 24 hours a day. Clients may email their documents for review, evaluation, and consultation anytime during the day and expect an next-day turn-around time. At night, clients may still email documents with the understanding that they may have to wait twenty-four hours (or in the case of the weekend, until Monday) to get a response. The ESU Writing Center located at 304 Plumb Hall is open during the week. To check its operating hours, click here or on the Resources link to the left.
